on that course. >> good things happen when presidents are golfing with famous people. back in 1997 bill clinton got a phone call while he was golfing with michael jordan in vegas. he got the horrible news that -- true stroory. i get to say this because i'm a former politician. he got the news that if he did nothing, the budget was going to balance itself alone without any of his help. so he quit, rushed to the airport and came back saying, we have to do something fast so i can take credit for it. and we did. so there you go. i think it's a fascinating story. i did that for the kids. >> meanwhile, in the middle of all this, senator lindsay graham is suggesting one potential -- >> wait, wait, wait. can i just ask a question? >> because he needs cameras and likes to be on tv and has a lot to say. >> let's be honest, guys. john, you're not looking at me. you're reading. >> what is wrong with you? >> i'm reading about immigration. >> we're talking about lindsay. we poke at lindsay a lot. it's not personal. should we have an intervention? should we give him a call, or should we call somebody in the s

hillary clinton did when she was elected after 2000 to the senate, to try to become not just a star because she was so well known, warren was, as hillary was, but to try to work in the system of the senate, unlike some other of the freshmen. and this was her moment because this is what she knows best. this is why she was elected. and that's where she punched through. >> all right. still ahead on "morning joe," congressman charlie rangel who today is introducing a bill that would reinstate the draft. also, lieutenant governor of california, gavin newsom. moderator of "meet the press," david gregory and eugene robinson. up next, mike allen with the "politico playbook." first bill karins with a check on the forecast. >> an interesting forecast for the east coast. i've been talking all week about the potential for a storm with snow. looks like we'll see some of that snow. the worst commute early this morning. rain has been moving out of south florida. looks like miami beginning to clear out. from cape coral to palm bay, you may see a few showers around melbourne, too. the other story, t

clinton's low point. they asked for security in benghazi. they didn't get it. the ambassador asked for help. he didn't get it. what does that have to do with chuck hagel? >> well, john mccain has been trying to get answers from the white house about benghazi. i think he sees this as a moment of leverage now. he can hold this up. he's got a bunch of republican senators who will follow his lead. >> what does he want? what else does he want? >> he wants the white house to explain in great detail what the president was doing or what the president did the night of the attack. he wants to know exactly what was happening that night. and he said until he gets that information, he cannot move forward with a vote on chuck hagel who clearly had nothing to do with benghazi, but mccain's going to use this moment to get that information. >> don't you think it's more frustration on the part of mccain and graham that they can't really get the president of the united states to sit and respond to their questions? so they flail away at chuck hagel, you know, over benghazi. secretary clinton is gone.
taxes by 65%. and they tried -- if we don't raise taxes 65%, this was right after the clinton tax increases and the state. and i was saying this is going to be devastating for our economic development. well, the city -- every city councilman got up there and councilwoman saying we don't get 65% tax increase, the firefighters aren't going to be able to come and rescue your little doggy from the tree. when your children are going to walk down streets that aren't going to be -- and they went on and on, tumbleweeds are going to be rolling -- guess what? we killed the tax increase. you know what happened? they gave their 11 city managers a 35% pay raise the next week. how many times -- why do i bring that up? it ain't just pensacola. every time americans hear politicians on any level saying, you know, we've got to spend more money, or else the world comes to an end. they just don't believe it anymore. >> i have a list of the national horrors that are going to occur when sequestration takes effect according to the administration released last night. look, they -- you get the sense they
, for instance, steve kroft's "60 minutes" interview where he had the president and secretary clinton. it was the biggest softball interview on the planet. they didn't ask any questions about benghazi. it was in the news that week. a whole range of issues. it was all sweetness and light. the president on the one hand when they do get this access, it's like softball city. and when they don't get the access, like on the golf course, it's where we're being shut out. it's the most opaque administration in history. so it's a little bit of much to do about nothing, i think. >> it's harder to be a journalist these days. it really is. in the era of social media with not just the white house and the president but corporations. everyone is going direct to the readership themselves. so i think that's just adding to the frustration here. >> jay carney answered some of these questions yesterday at the podium in the briefing room, too. he laid out all the interviews they've given and the access the white house feels it has given. >> there's no question that if you go back to when mr. barnicle and i
'm not going to invade iraq because i can't get the aircraft carriers i need or even bill clinton saying, you know, i'm not going to attack saddam hussein's intelligence headquarters, as he did when clinton was president because of some budget document? under the constitution, the president is commander in chief and employs the force. and so we now have the president going out because of this piece of paper and this agreement, i can't do what i need to do to protect the country. that's a kind of madness that i haven't seen in a long time. >> it is a madness. you also say here, you say the president's call for a balanced approach is reasonable. and i think we probably -- a lot of us would agree on the president's reasonable approach. and he makes a strong case of those at the top income brackets could and should pay more. but that was not the deal he made. you talk about the president moving the goalposts. what do you mean by that? >> well, the deal in the sequester was that it was only going to be spending cuts. and they reached that deal. in my book, i go through it step by step because the
to control the white house for eight years and you have hillary clinton. at the very top we're having a problem. we have to figure out who are leader is going to be. again, i'm sorry. if george w. bush is president of the united states, if gerald ford is president of the united states, he picks up the phone and calls and says let's get the guy from jersey who has 74% approval rating. we want him in our party. and we want colin powell in our party. bring colin powell. he can talk about defense. figure it out. we need that strong leader that can expand and let everyone know that it's okay to have people inside the tent that you may not agree with 100% of the time. >> my advice to those folks if they want to be in that leadership role, they got to run. they got to get to iowa. they got to get to south carolina. they got to go to the early states and start building relationships. >> with a message that's also reflecting the shifting demographics of the country. people can't just believe that they're going to put a new face on an old set of messages and policies and be able to motivate and
